BCECF, AM Ester

BCECF, AM ester is membrane-permeant and thus can be loaded into cells via incubation. This product is a mixture of three molecular species, all of which are readily hydrolyzed by endogenous esterases into a single BCECF free acid form once they are in the cells.

    BCECF, Free Acid

    BCECF (2′,7′ -bis-(Carboxyethyl)-5-(and-6)-carboxyfluorescein) is the most widely used fluorescent pH sensor. Because its pKa (6.97) is close to physiological pH, BCECF can detect cytosolic pH change with high sensitivity.

    Flubi-2

    Flubi-2 is the hydrolyzed product of the site-directed fluorogenic probe Flubida-2 (#51022) and can be used as a standard for calibration.

    Flubida-2

    Flubida-2 has been used to detect pH at a specific site in a cell such as cell organelles by directing the probe to where avidin fusion proteins are located. The probe is a conjugate of biotin and fluorescein diacetate, which is nonfluorescent until the probe has entered the cells and hydrolyzed by endoesterases.
